Overall we would have liked to have stayed for longer than 1 night to be able to rate it properly. However I am a fan of boutique hotels, and the place was tranquil, helpful staff, food prepared and put forward as a quality service. Place located on the mountain, about 20min away from Kandy. The reason we have rated it...

My husband and I visited Theva for a 2 nights stay this month. While planning the trip, the management was very responsive to all our queries and also helped us arrange a pick up from the Kandy train station and a half day of sightseeing. The location of the property is superb. The entire staff was very courteous and polite....

Like you can expect from a boutique hotel you feel straight at home. We had a nice room with a beautiful view over Kandy. Off course you can talk about the very good service minded staff but two things are regarded very positive because we had not expected them. First a new, small sauna and Turkish bath, very nice after...

Staff were some of the most friendly people we had met throughout our stay in Sri Lanka, and if you've been to Sri Lanka, you'll know most people are genuinely friendly! The hotel itself is beautifully situated on a hill overlooking Kandy and the valley. Morning mists greet you as you wake up and the views are breath-taking as is...

Having left Colombo and Habarana behind, it was great to find this oasis in Kandy. Kandy itself is cooler and less humid making it a good place to visit as well as its obvious religious and historic significance. Theva Residency overlooks Kandy and offers further respite from the heat. Food was super and the staff very attentive. Referencing the Queens...

This is the first time we have been to this hotel. Since we reached there, we were treated really well by the staff. It has been truly wonderful experience. There is nothing to complain about this place. Absolutely stunning views. On a clear day probably you would see a better sun set but unfortunately we were not that lucky because...

We had a very relaxing stay at the Theva Residency. Beautifully set on the hills overlooking Kandy, this hotel exceeding our expectations and so we found it good value for money. Rooms are delightful and well kept. The pool area is small but nicely designed and maintained. The food is delicious (both local and from other cultures not just Western)...

Theva Residency is located on top of a mountain overlooking Kandy. The views from the hotel are spectacular and can really be appreciated whilst dining or relaxing by the infinity pool. We were welcomed with a lovely refreshing local drink and were absolutely thrilled by the service, friendly and helpful staff and the quality of the hotel. Our suite was...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A slice of Heaven… Nestled in the Hantana Hills Theva sits overlooking Kandy town. As you drive through the windy roads up the Hantana hills one can see the ethereal glistening of small city lights filling the night sky. An undoubtedly magical entrance to this boutique hotel. The food is divine and prepared with the utmost devotion and attention to detail. The Chef and his team have really been able to bring world-class food to this remote location. ... more   less
